I live with a cat named Leonis. I adore him. He is the most peaceful and loving being I know. He's a very big cat and his little brother is about half his size. Little brother is a little more aggressive :) Peace and aggression are interesting ideas when it comes to animals or animal nature. Why, when a cat is well fed, do they still hunt? Why do they play with and eventually kill birds when they aren't hungry?
A lot of bird lovers get understandably upset when talking about this because it seems cruel and unfair to birds. I've often heard bird lovers say there should be a quota for cats in any given area because of their impact on the bird population. I love birds and don't like to see them killed either and I try to prevent it as much as possible on our property. So I did a little painting a while back about birds and peace and my favorite time of night. I titled it Birds at Rest.
